Figuring some things out

Numerologists get off on numbers

Naturally, you needn’t go figure.

Poets put quality before quantity

Being wedded to apt word order.

They see this world figuratively,

In a calculated fashion to sum up

How they enumerate Xs and whys

That confront you and me in the big

Human equation of our relativity.

Bull headed- as a Taurus- perfect! says what needs to be said, clear, concise and well, well done!

I must admit that using apt beats the right/best used by past greats in a similar context.

 

It is not bull headed but right on the spot but only nigh perfect , because shouldn't X's and whys (Frank, you clever man) confront me not I?"

 

I think not using "me" you miss a sweet and merely incidental inner rhyme w/ "relativity".

 

A part time mathematician I was tickled but good. Thanks, Frank, for the quirky fun.
